Kensington is a great village of San Diego with beautiful 1930's homes. The commercial section is small with 3-4 great restaurants. Menu is very interesting, food quality great, service very good and prices are typical for this level of restaurant.

Went here with a group. I had the blueberry martini, it is so good.. We had a cheese platter, which was so so. Nothing special. The sea bass was very good. Service was excellent. I'd come here again.
